Halbach Assemblies and Halbach Arrays. Are they Right For Your Application?
By: Michael Brand, President, SM Magnetics
Halbach assemblies and Halbach arrays have existed for many years. They are again becoming more prominent with advancements in advanced motor designs, technology requirements for innovative medical research and the need to make smaller holding applications in consumer electronics and medical devices.
Halbach arrays provide a very strong, focused field at specific points or areas based upon their linear or cylindrical design. But we want to challenge you to ask the critical question many times during the design and simulation phase… “is a Halbach the right magnetic concept for my application?” In the below video we address the pros and cons of Halbach assemblies and provide technical data to help you decide.
